USELESS MISSILE DEFENSE «SECRETS». WHAT’S BEHIND ANOTHER US «GOOD WILL GESTURE?»

USELESS MISSILE DEFENSE «SECRETS». WHAT’S BEHIND ANOTHER US «GOOD WILL GESTURE?»

The US national missile defense, especially its European component, is one of the major irritants in the Russia — US bilateral relations. The USA insists it is created to counter the threat coming from Iran and North Korea. Russia says geography, physics laws, and irrefutable facts clearly indicate the system is aimed at Russia not Iran. It makes its legitimate concern justified. »»»»»

BASHAR ASSAD’S ODDS.
No unity as used to be in "Friends of Syria" ranks

BASHAR ASSAD’S ODDS. No unity as used to be in "Friends of Syria" ranks

It was in Cairo where a Saudi prince made public the sensational news about the existence of Qatar — Israel conspiracy. He came there to express protest concerning the decision of the king of Saudi Arabia to appoint Saudi Amir (Prince) Nayef bin Abdul Aziz an heir to the throne bypassing his five older brothers, including Amir Talal. So President Assad gets one more ace — the growing tension in the states that have played the most important role in all Arab revolutions until now. »»»»»

«ARAB SPRING» EXPORTED TO CHINA: THE USA EYES TIBET, XINJIANG AND CELLPHONES

«ARAB SPRING» EXPORTED TO CHINA: THE USA EYES TIBET, XINJIANG AND CELLPHONES

At the 48 Munich security conference China’s Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Zhijun said China’s involvement into global security grows along with its economic might. He emphasized there were no reasons for the situation to get worse. In response US senator John McCain decided to make the Chinese official know his place. The Senator said as he had said many times and would repeat it again «the Arab Spring is coming to China». The ex US presidential candidate told the Chinese diplomat there was no way to suppress it due to the up-to-date gadgets and showed his cell phone as an example. He said he hoped China would develop the way Mr. Zhang Zhijun told the conference because good will and peaceful relations were common goal. He added: «Knowing your neigbours in the region as I do there is great concern about some of your activities». »»»»»

DO US SPECIAL OPERATIONS FORCES SEIZE LIBYAN KEY OIL INFRASTRUCTURE ASSETS?

DO US SPECIAL OPERATIONS FORCES SEIZE LIBYAN KEY OIL INFRASTRUCTURE ASSETS?

The unexpectedly quick EU consent to take immediate sanctions against Iran "coincided" with seizure of Libyan oil terminals. To certain extent the negative affect of expected oil shortage for European economy could be minimized in case the utmost is done to boost the Brega and Ras-Lanuf production capacities till the complete cessation of contacts with Iran is in force. »»»»»

USA AND TALIBAN:
WHO THE SUDDEN TRUCE IS TARGETED AGAINST?

USA AND TALIBAN: WHO THE SUDDEN TRUCE IS TARGETED AGAINST?

The US two wars fighting capability concept, that has been fundamental until recently, is revisioned. But it’s an interesting fact the number of US enemies keeps growing. The strategic adversaries like China and Russia aside, Syria and Iran are the countries military strikes are seriously planned against in the nearest future. It makes it two theaters of operations at least. If the US military is to wage only one war, than who is going to fight the other one? »»»»»

LIBYA: SUCCESS IS NEVER BLAMED, ISN’T IT?

LIBYA: SUCCESS IS NEVER BLAMED, ISN’T IT?

The laws of information war are merciless. Today almost no one remembers the February-March accusations of Gaddafi. This seems to be the same kind of incident as the "search of the WMD" in 2003, which caused the American and British invasion or the "mass execution of peaceful Albanians" by Serbian security forces in Kosovar settlement Račak in 1999. At that the issue of moral responsibility of Western politicians, diplomats, and media-holding companies has never ever been put to the agenda of the day. The globalized West sticks to "the end justifies the means" principle and is sure that success is never blamed. »»»»»

RUSSIA AS THE GUARANTOR OF EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN SAFETY. Regional presence of Moscow will reduce the risk of conflict in the Turkey — Cyprus — Israel — Syria square

RUSSIA AS THE GUARANTOR OF EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN SAFETY. Regional presence of Moscow will reduce the risk of conflict in the Turkey — Cyprus — Israel — Syria square

The new power, designed to secure peace and stability in the Eastern Mediterranean, is to put itself forth with strength and energy. We have to say that Russia fits the role just fine. At that, Russia also has economic incentives to carry out active policy in that direction. It is well-known that Syria is going to develop trade relations with the Customs Union. »»»»»

THE U.S. ELECTIONS. CAINE AND ROMNEY: Two GOP trends

THE U.S. ELECTIONS. CAINE AND ROMNEY: Two GOP trends

According to the recent public opinion polls, merely 37% believe that Barack Obama will win the elections. 55% believe that the next U.S. President is to be Republican. Now it would be good to figure out, who may actually become this Republican President, what principles will his policy rest upon and what is the Russia’s place in it. »»»»»

AMERICAN SPRING. Mass protests are spreading over the West, while Ayatollah Khamenei prophecies the collapse of global capitalism

AMERICAN SPRING. Mass protests are spreading over the West, while Ayatollah Khamenei prophecies the collapse of global capitalism

The U.S. and especially the EU authorities are willing save the operation ability of the current economic system and its institutions, although the stabilization efforts are often late, while their realization is often complicated by internal and external reasons. Interests of supranational alignments, national elites, major corporations, middle class and the poor clash in a Gordian knot of a conflict. There’s a great shortage of the available financial resources and, which is the most important, the time itself. Theoretically the situation still may be fixed, albeit the practical chance of achieving the desired result is dismal. »»»»»

ALEXANDRE LATSA: ARCTIC AGE. Part II

ALEXANDRE LATSA: ARCTIC AGE. Part II

During the Cold War era the Arctic was considered to be the shortest route to attack the enemy, but now the ongoing climate changes (global warming and glacier meltdown) revive the heated interest towards this region as long as new naval trade routes between the West and Asia emerge — they’re shorter, more lucrative and safer (due to lack of piracy). Actually, since 1979 the area of Arctic glaciers has decreased by 20% and it is to decrease by 50% more by 2100. »»»»»
